Not only was this recipe fairly easy (at least with a kitchen aid doing the work), but the bolo's came out perfectly. These were a favourite treat growing up when my mother brought them home from the shop and now they are going to be a favourite of my daughters (and husband) when I make them at home.
I read through the reviews and my experience was so different from many of the others. Although we all seemed to love the results, it seems that some put way more effort in than I did. I placed all the ingredients at once into my Kitchen aid and let it go for about ten minutes. Then I let it rise in my oven with the oven light on for an hour or two. This resulted in a nice, elastic dough that I kneaded lightly and cut in to 16 parts. With a rolling pin I rolled (only three rolls in total) the dough balls into flat circles. I let them rise again on a well oiled parchment paper and gave them an extra coating on top to make sure they didn't stick.
When they were ready to cook, I heated a cast iron griddle on med-low heat and gently placed each patty on to the pan and cooked for 2 minutes a side. They were perfect.
Honestly, if I spent more than hour of actual labour on these I would be surprised.
